July is National Ice Cream Month

July 15, 2007

In 1984, President Ronald Reagan designated July as National Ice Cream Month and the third Sunday of the month as National Ice Cream Day. He recognized ice cream as a fun and nutritious food that is enjoyed by a full 90% of the nation’s population. In the proclamation, President Reagan called for all people of the United States to observe these events with “appropriate ceremonies and activities.”

The International Ice Cream Association (IICA) encourages retailers and consumers to celebrate July as National Ice Cream Month. In 2007, National Ice Cream Day will be Sunday, July 15.

The U.S. ice cream industry generates more than $21 billion in annual sales and provides jobs for thousands of citizens. About 9% of all the milk produced by U.S. dairy farmers is used to produce ice cream, contributing significantly to the economic well-being of the nation’s dairy industry.

    My favorite ice cream story happened in 1982 when I first moved to Louisiana. I went to an ice cream store and ordered a cone (Baskin-Robbins, I think). I sat down to enjoy my delicious pleasure, and noticed a guy standing in line, waiting to order his ice cream. He had a “holster” attached to his belt.

    When they have him his dish of ice cream, he opened his holster, and pulled out a bottle of Tobasco Sauce! He then poured Tobasco all over his bowl of ice cream, and sat down to eat it!! He had a huge smile on his face…

    Some people like their food spicey, yes, but ICE CREAM????

    Welcome to Louisiana!! Culture Shock…

    That pic of bubble gum looks good….Here is a poll: What is your favorite Baskin Robins Ice Cream? Peanut Butter and Chocolate for me. After working there when I was a kid I soon realized that they clearly make the best ice cream there is. For those of you that disagree you must remember quality of the product ends when it is in your hands. If you bought it in a grocery store it’s automatically crap even if it says Baskin Robins on it. Here is the link to the poll I mentioned: http://www.apopularitycontest.com/display_poll.php?ID=14
